ITP – International Travel Partnership, one of the world’s fastest-growing travel management consortiums, is pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Dugan to the ITP Advisory Board of Directors. Simon is Director of Sales and Account Management with ITP’s UK TMC partner, Ian Allan Travel, and his appointment follows Paul Allan’s resignation, Paul having recently been appointed to the role of Chairman of the GTMC (Guild of Travel Management Companies) in the United Kingdom.
For many years ITP has been steered by a Board of five TMC partners representing different regional markets around the world. Each Board member volunteers to serve for a minimum of two years and they ensure that the efforts of the ITP management team meet the commercial expectations of all ITP partners and provide the appropriate level of multinational support and infrastructure. Currently, members of the Board are senior management from ITP partners in Australia, Germany, Oman, UK and USA.
ITP’s Chairman, Jean-Claude Fert, said ”Simon brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in business travel to his role on the ITP Board. He is passionate about our industry and the opportunities that ITP presents to the market. Simon is also well-known within the ITP network and has forged many strong relationships that will help him to undertake his new responsibilities.”
Simon Dugan said, ”I look forward to building on Paul’s work with the board to date. This represents a great opportunity for me to help shape the ITP offering with my fellow board members, and the network, to continue providing a viable alternative to traditional multi-national travel management consolidation.”
